Absolutely adored RE0! One of my favorite resident evil games. Loved the awesome character change system :P surprised to not see grand theft auto liberty city stories. Great prequel on a great portable system

I loved Zero too, the atmosphere on the train was terrific! I wish they would release a HD Trilogy comprised of RE:REMAKE, Zero and Recelations.

Yes! nice to see a bit of love for Resident Evil Zero for a change. I thought it was brilliant, loved Rebecca and Billy I thought they were a great duo. I always thought we would see a return of those two in a future RE. Ah well.
Anyway I loved the fact that you could switch between the two and drop items anywhere you wanted. I also loved the horrible leech guys that consumed your ammo and scared the s***t out of me! damn that music!

I loved RE0. Billy and Rebecca were great characters. I would love to play as them again. Unfortunately, Capcom is acting like the series revolve around, Chris, Leon, and Jill.

I think its because the RE series started off with Chris, Jill, Wesker & Barry then came Leon in RE2. RE Zero wasnt even made yet that is why fans of the series remember those 3 characters.

I thought I also remembered rebecca from RE helping out chris, but I could be wrong, its been a while since ive played The 1st RE.

Yeah, she played the piano for him in RE1.

Too bad the RE movies dont even go with the main characters in the game. Thats a major letdown.

I'm not sure I'd classify any Zelda game as a prequel. A prequel has to involve the same characters as the original story... it doesn't simply mean any supplementary story set prior in time to the original.

...And, in general, I can't think of many prequels, games or otherwise, that are done well.

Most recently, Tomb Raider is a good example. But that's about equal parts Prequel, equal parts Reboot. And beyond that... I don't know. The "In the Begining" movie was a great prequel to Babylon 5; the Greg Bear/others? Foundation novels were a fairly good set of prequels to Asimov's work.

...And that's all I can think of.

loved RE:0, buuuut where is MGS 3? its a prequel too
Kurylo3d  +   543d ago
by far the best prequel of any series was mgs3. So awesome and so important for the future of mgs.
Venox2008  +   542d ago
MGS 3 is one of the best games for me ever, plus it's the best MGS to date
